Fantasy EPL Gameweek 38 Sleepers XI

For this article, we use the % rostered from Fantrax. Our only rule is that each player we highlight is required to be rostered in 60% of leagues or below at the time of writing. Therefore there's a good chance these players will be free agents in your Fantrax Draft League!


GK: Lukasz Fabianski

Team: West Ham

Opponent: Brighton (Away)

Rostered: 44%

Points Last Gameweek: 17.75

ProspectsFabianski has had back to back double digit outings, and could see one more to end the season. Brighton really have nothing to play for which could lead to rotation, while West Ham will look to push for a 6th place finish. There's a good chance Fabianski keeps a clean sheet this weekend.


DEF: Dan Burn

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 42%

Points Last Gameweek: 12

Prospects: Burn has been a mainstay in this article and rightfully so. It is criminal he is so under rostered. In the final matchup he goes against Burnley who are fighting to stave off relegation and usually yield a number of aerials (Big Dan Burn's forte). Newcastle will be looking to play spoilers there, and could see a clean sheet.


DEF: Alex Telles

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Away)

Rostered: 42%

Points Last Gameweek: 0

ProspectsTelles should start the final game of the year, with Shaw missing training while his wife gave birth to their child. As we saw last gameweek, Crystal Palace can concede from set pieces very easily. Telles will split these with Bruno and will like his chances of getting a return. Telles has DEF1 upside this weekend.


DEF: Malang Sarr

Team: Chelsea

Opponent: Watford (Home)

Rostered: 5%

Points Last Gameweek: 0

Prospects: Chelsea are basically locked into 3rd spot unless Spurs can overcome a near 20 goal differential and Chelsea manage a loss against Watford. Tuchel may give some of his younger players one final game to impress him before the summer. Sarr perfectly fits this category. Depending on the system used, he could start at either CB or LB. I like Chelsea's chances at a clean sheet this weekend, with Sarr offering DEF2 value.


DEF: Davinson Sanchez

Team: Tottenham

Opponent: Norwich (Away)

Rostered: 32%

Points Last Gameweek: 22.75

ProspectsSanchez won the decisive penalty in Spurs' narrow win vs. Burnley. Now it should be very straight forward for Spurs Sunday, meaning a clean sheet and a solid floor for Sanchez. He is also a massive threat from set pieces, and has the upside of a DEF1 in this very friendly matchup.

MID: Ryan Sessegnon

Team: Tottenham

Opponent: Norwich (Away)

Rostered: 18%

Points Last Gameweek: 15.5

Prospects: Sessegnon is doing everything he can to lock down that LWB spot, and is making a strong case. He dropped 15.5 ghost points against Burnley, and has a good chance of repeating this feat against a team that should provide him ample opportunity and space. Playing as a defender but listed as a midfielder is tough in fantrax, but Sessegnon still holds MID3 value this weekend.


MID: Nathan Redmond

Team: Southampton

Opponent: Leicester City (Away)

Rostered: 32%

Points Last Gameweek: 15.5

ProspectsRedmond got himself a goal against Liverpool, and will be looking to finish the season on a high note. Leicester have been very inconsistent in recent weeks, but struggle to keep clean sheets ,which should provide an opportunity for Redmond to get his second attacking return in as many games.


MID: Miguel Almiron

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 17%

Points Last Gameweek: 8

ProspectsAlmiron has played well when given the starts by Howe. He should get the start in the season finale, and will be looking to add a goal or assist to his name. Fraser is back from injury, but there is no reason to risk him here.


MID: Fred

Team: Manchester United

Opponent: Crystal Palace (Away)

Rostered: 38%

Points Last Gameweek: 0

ProspectsFred should see a more advanced role with Pogba still out injured, and should have plenty of work to do in the midfield against the likes of Eze and Schlupp. Fred also has the ability to pop up with a goal in these kind of games, giving him MID3 value this weekend.


FWD: Callum Wilson

Team: Newcastle

Opponent: Burnley (Away)

Rostered: 54%

Points Last Gameweek: 1.5

ProspectsWilson looked up for it against Arsenal in his first start since a horrific injury. Although the points didn't show it, he was heavily involved in both the goals, and will be looking to finish off the campaign on a high note. He looks as fit as ever and will be looking to send Burnley down to the championship on the final day.


FWD: Danny Welbeck

Team: Brighton

Opponent: West Ham (Home)

Rostered: 27%

Points Last Gameweek: 15.5

ProspectsWelbeck has been in tremendous form recently, and has the upside of a FWD2 in this final gameweek. West Ham have a lot more to play for, but that won't stop Welbeck from trying to get a goal this weekend. He looks close to a new contract and will be hoping to prove he should be the first choice striker going into next season.
